Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ha. With public opinion evenly split and static, the referendum result looks to be cast in concrete.

But if that favourable/unfavourble split goes to 30 points or more, which is entirely possible if that bad news keeps coming, then the Titanic post-iceberg will be more likely to keep floating.

No MP has a political principle so profound it is resistant to the threat of losing their seat at the election. Maybe Jacab Wheeze-Moggadishu or John Redwood, but I bet there's a lot of anti-EU MPs who can and would far prefer their seats inside an EU than be removed from Parliament outside it. After all, if the City goes to Dublin, all those lucrative directorships go west as well. At which point brexit means brexit may become the we tried our hardest but the terms simply were unacceptable so we're punishing them by staying.

keep to the Fen Causeway
